Strategy and Management

 

Customer reference for process optimization and technology partnership

  • Process analysis and optimization
  • Technology partnership for the complete radiology department


Results

  • Development of strategic options for the future organization of the radiology department
  • Faster indications in emergency examinations
  • Significantly reduced waiting times by extending the Magnetic Resonance Tomography service hours
  • Reduced number of examinations by approx. 15 percent, resulting from the introduction of an internal settlement of services
  • Ability to further reduce MRT waiting times by extending service hours
  • Increased CT capacities by preparing the patient on the ward (e.g., placing the I.V. line)
  • Increased equipment load capacity through a central coordination point (e.g., a call center)
  • Reduced reading time in scan diagnostics

Process Optimization

 

Patient-oriented acute stroke therapy

  • Strategy shift towards process and service-oriented alignment
  • Service-oriented concept for quality improvement and cost reduction for stroke therapy


Results

  • Detailed analysis of the market situation
  • Identification of current unique selling propositions
  • Definition of an optimized portfolio
  • Recommendations for forms of cooperation
  • Identification of the barriers and development of solution scenarios
  • Definition of patient-oriented acute stroke processes
  • Benchmarking of KPIs
  • Expected reduction of “door-to-treatment” time by 34 per cent

Technology and Infrastructure

 

Customer reference for Technology and Infrastructure
Space and layout planning of a radiology department using simulation

  • Development of a concept for medical equipment and various process-optimized layout scenarios
  • Evaluation of the scenarios with regard to patient flow, loads, capacities, and barriers using simulation 

 

Results

  • Identification of capacity limits at a given distribution of space and equipment
  • Identification of the optimal space assignment
  • Identification of bottlenecks in the patient process with regard to infrastructure, workflows, and organization
  • Identification of the interrelations between resource allocation and patient throughput
  • Development of the final layout concept, based on quantitative simulation data
